[no sounds] [no sounds]
7:03 am
[no sounds] [no sounds] once again here at mission control the room is filled with the greats from the history of the shuttle program who have spent the past three decades in support of mission operations to bring all of these flights to conclusion.
7:04 am
[inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations]
7:05 am
[no sounds] [no sounds] >> this is mission control houston. it has been just over an hour since atlantis has landed at the kennedy space center. and with the vehicle now having been handed over to the kennedy space center for the final time, we will return to the floor space port and continuing coverage of the completion of the final mission and space shuttle program history. for the last time in this room, this is mission control houston.
7:06 am
[no sounds] [no sounds] [no sounds] >> this is kennedy space center shuttle ground operations. one hour eight minutes 35 seconds after the landing of space shuttle atlantis.
7:07 am
right now we see the payload then has moved up around the nose of atlantis. it will be used very shortly to take the three middeck -- time critical science experiments off middeck and will be going to an off-line laboratory at the space station processing facility before the effects of gravity have a chance to change the data that the scientists are looking for on those experiments. right now, the communications coming from the flight deck from the asp are being relayed to houston through the tracking
7:08 am
station to their uhf antenna, and there is still telemetry data going back to houston through milos s. band uplink antenna. and this will be the last mission for the mileage tracking station. it's been supporting manned space operations since the early days of apollo. and its history ends with sts-135. out on the runway the main chute has been recovered, and work is underway now to bring back the drag chute.
7:09 am
crews are going in under atlantis now. the orbiter has cooled. landing gear has been pinned and some initial tile inspections will begin. the data from the onboard flight, data recorders, has been dumped. the data dump has been completed. it's been uplink to houston through mila. turnover the kennedy occurred at landing plus an hour, nominal time.
7:10 am
temperature, the landing hatch was open at 628, about 31 minutes after landing. and our first crew member was off. it was mission specialist number two, rex walheim. he was off at 6:37. he was followed by sandy magnus, then our pilot, commander chris ferguson left atlanta's at 6:45. and payloads report they now are on board the orbiter.
7:11 am
and as we heard, all of the ground cooling are connected as we can see here on atlantis. the weather forecast from the runway back to the orbiter processing facility has just been passed to the ground team out on the runway, and the toe is expected to begin at about 10:00, completed about an hour later at 11. it's going to get hot very quickly. here is the crew transport vehicle now pulling back away from atlantis. with the for astronauts onboard.
7:12 am
they will be getting a brief physical before they leave the crew transport vehicle and walk around atlantis. and the weather forecast for the tow will be quite warm, once that tow begins. already up to 94 degrees during the tow later this morning. wind will be out of the southwest, just 20% chance of rain showers. meanwhile, the sun is well above the horizon on a beautiful, clear morning here at kennedy space center. general-purpose computers on atlantis have been powered down.
7:13 am
the crew will have the chance to do the customary walk around, a tradition which began back with sts-1, with john young and bob griffith.
7:14 am
[no sounds] [no sounds] >> we will be watching for the stairs to come down from the transport vehicle. we expect the astronauts will have a short statement to make before they leave the runway to go back to the astronaut quarters. and with them also with some remarks we are nasa administrator, charlie bolden. also serve as a stay shuttle astronaut -- also who has served as a stay shuttle astronaut.
7:15 am
and the staircase on the crew transport vehicle is now coming down. meanwhile, seems a lot of foot traffic on and off the orbiter as things are being destowed.
7:16 am
[no sounds] [no sounds] >> the activities are going right on time when. in fact, some things are ahead and there have not been any anomalies, nothing unusual noted. right now the distances for the landing gear, the point where the wheels stopped on the runway is being measured. and the commander is now leaving the crew transport vehicle, along with our other astronauts,
7:17 am
being greeted by our nasa administrator and our center director, bob cabana. we see sandy magnus, doug hurley, rex walheim and chris ferguson. john shannon from houston. our launch vehicles atlantis flow manager, angie brewer. tom shannon who has served as our program manager out at houston for shuttle program.
7:18 am
we see our launch director in the background, mike leinbach. and mike moses along with mike leinbach. there's our deputy administrator and our administrator, charlie bolden.

john casper also shuttle astronaut. [no sounds] [no sounds] >> the weather out on the runway is still very favorable. it's still cool, not as hot as it will be by late morning, in
7:29 am
the mid '90s. just a few showers offshore moving away from the cape. and all of the activity continues to be on schedule to start a tow back to our processing facility, about 10 a.m. [inaudible conversations] >> you all probably can't hear me out there but i'm going to talk to the mic anyway. it's a great day to be here and to welcome the sts-134 crew back home. i personally want to salute them anyone who's been involved in this program. it's been a 30 year journey that has been absolutely incredible.
7:30 am
and i want to say that all of us stand on the shoulders of some pretty giants. nine any better than this. they have come to be known as the final four. and they didn't absolutely incredible job. if you had an opportunity to watch anytime during the mission, they were like resources the whole time. they made us very proud. we've been exploring since early in our countries history, and what fergie and his crew did this time was kind of close out this era of our exploration. but i want everybody was involved in this to feel incredibly proud of what you did and what your role was. like me, they got an opportunity to do the flying but we are all an incredible debt of gratitude of hundreds of thousands of folks around the country who made all this possible. had a chance to talk to some of you this morning, and we were lining up the convoy. i thank you again for everything
7:31 am
you have done. the things that we have done have set us up for exploration in the future, but i don't want to talk about that right now. i want to salute this group, welcomed him home, let them know how proud we are of them. and fergie, ask you to come on up and talk to your crew. thank you very much. [applause] >> thank you, charlie. we really appreciate those remarks. i'll tell you what. flying in space is a real dream, but flying in space has a lot more to do with who you do it with than what you do. and these three folks, rex and sandy and done, i'll to you, a commander couldn't ask for three better people to go and perform an aggressive, into a certain extent, a historic mission. there's no doubt that there is a lot of attention paid to this mission because it does bring to a final close 30 years of space shuttle history.
7:32 am
i'm going to speak on behalf of them and just say that we are all, the three of us, or four of us, are honored to be a part of this. but ultimately it's everyone who has worked on the shuttle program, although we got to take the ride, we sure hope that everybody who has ever worked or touched or looked at or in deed or admired a space shuttle was able to dig just a little part of the journey with us. we're going to put atlantis in a museum now, along with the other three orbiters, for generations that will come after us to admire and appreciate. and hopefully, i want that picture of a young six-year-old boy looking up at a space shuttle in a museum and say, you know, daddy, i want to do something like that when i grow up, or i want our country to do fantastic things like this for the continued future. if we take those steps right now and they continued with that,
7:33 am
that next generation of space explorers, and i consider our job your complete. so again on half of the crew, thank you so much for the time and the attention and for the folks at ksc, thank you for this fantastic vehicle. it performed absolutely wonderfully. not a glitch. and it's just as pristine as it was i hope on the day that we took it. the door opened up low bit on entry but everything is wonderful. the vehicle is great, and thank you very much. [applause] >> [no sounds]
